Esther Metting Assistant professor at the Data Science Center in Health (DASH) Profile

I am psychologist and epidemiologist, working as assistant professor at the Data Science Center in Health (DASH) and the University of Groningen. Since September 2021, I am a member of the Young Academy Groningen. During the COVID-19 crisis I have evaluated the CoronaMelder and CoronaCheck applications for VWS and I have led the evaluation of the COVID-19 fast testing lane for education organisations in Groningen. I have also worked as project leader eHealth in a large health care organisation and I am active as board member or advisor in several patient organisations. These hands-on experiences are valuable in my daily work. Above that, my unique experience in clinical, behavioural and implementation science have led to a solid and multidisciplinary basis for health research. In the past years I have coached and lectured numerous bachelor, master and PhD students with different backgrounds. In my role as project leader and chair I have learned to manage longitudinal (international) projects. My goal is to use my talent, experience and my passion for science to improve scientific knowledge in the field of eHealth.
